it's maybe not that fast from the factory, but it has a ton of potential after-market. rsx-s is pretty fast, my friend has one, but i like the EP3 chassis better and also after the A2 head swap and CTR intake manifold, i will be pretty quick too.

Another good point.

The main reason I said that I would have waited is because the '06 Si is probably gonna be the best Civic made to date. More than that it will probably be better than the old Preludes.

I'm sorry... don't know why I said that about them not being fast... please don't hurt me?! They're quick. Also... you should do a type-s head swap. Or look around and maybe find a type-r if you're lucky.

ive read up on that Type-S headswap swap on A3's, and they seem to say the gains don't show through unless you get the A2 6 speed tranny.

The Type-S head flows superior to the A3 head, but you need the gearing to take advantage of its flow in the upper RPM band.

it's part flow and the extra lobes on the cam. The A3 heads are missing them. The A2 heads on the K20/K24 have more of the 'real' vtec as seen in the B motors, and the K20A3 (si) K24A4 (accord) are getting more of an emission boost, and not more power without the lobes.

I can't wait to find a K20A2 head, get a K-Pro, and 6speed w/LSD....best part, I won't need motor mounts
